Subject: [PATCH 3.10 17/71] Drivers: scsi: storvsc: Implement a eh_timed_out handler

3.10-stable review patch.  If anyone has any objections, please let me know.


From: "K. Y. Srinivasan" <>

commit 56b26e69c8283121febedd12b3cc193384af46b9 upstream.

On Azure, we have seen instances of unbounded I/O latencies. To deal with
this issue, implement handler that can reset the timeout. Note that the
host gaurantees that it will respond to each command that has been issued.
